  • Ask the doctor if it's OK to use a cortisone cream on the rash. I'm allergic to lanolin and can't use some diaper rash ointments or baby wipes because I get a rash from the lanolin in them.

  • Are you sure it's a reaction to the cream? It sounds kind of like a yeast infection and diaper cream alone won't do anything for that. You should call her doc to get their opinion, but if it's possibly a yeast infection ask about using an over-the-counter anti-fungal cream (like lotrimin - the stuff used for athletes foot). If it's definitely an allergic reaction, ask about a cortisol cream (I know a boy just under 2 who used it for ant bites) or even benedryl. Good luck!
